During the American Revolution preachers played a vital role in shaping the future country. Samuel Cooper had a church in Boston, at the very heart of the Revolution, that had notable figures such as John Hancock and future presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. He was also a friend of Benjamin Franklin’s and was asked to edit the Paris peace treaty by George Washington. In this sermon, On The Commencement Of The Constitution, Cooper preaches a sermon to the founders who would eventually write the constitution of the United States. In 1780, during the middle of the Revolution, he cast a vision of what the United States could be. And he described what would be needed to have a nation that aligned itself with God in all things.
